Not quite big enough for the Bumbo.

This made Bob remember fondly the volunteer work he did on a horse ranch in Texas.

Worth a thousand words?

So many complaints about no words with the posts! Well, captions have been added to the pics, so go back and see. Also there is a couple of Hyperlinks. That sounds cool doesn't it? Holly would think that it sounds nerdy. Enjoy!

PS. An old post that we made for the Fourth of July never got posted until just now. If you're interested, check our archives for the lost post.

Brooke's crib

We got this a couple weeks before Brooke came (thanks grandma Laurie and PopPop.)
I built the baby crib, then realized it didn't fit through the door. So I disassembled and rebuilt it.

G'Bye Uncle Chad

Uncle Chad let us know that he was Brooke's favorite uncle. That is quite a title as Brooke has eleven uncles. (Troy, Chad, Casey, Joe, Matthew, Danny, Nick, Cory, Kendall, Brock, and Wyatt)

Chad recently moved to Portland Oregon, and we all miss him a lot.

Brooke loves to sleep on our chests. It's one of Bob's favorite things to do with her right after he gets home from work. That and playing Nintendo.

Brooke the Swiss Miss

Brooke went with Holly and Grandma Terrilyn to Swiss Days in Midway. Grandma Laurie couldn't go, but she sent some cash for Brooke to spend on something pretty.
She is just enthralled by all the crap at Swiss Days!
Another shot of our cutie!

This is Brooke's second cousin Isaac, from the famous blog =

Brooke learned the art of projectile vomiting. Our laundry pile gets filled a lot quicker now


Brooke looks like she's dancing on the Thriller Video.

Holly's cousin Randi Lynn.

Lots of Pics

So happy!
Brooke's little hands have quite the dexterity when it comes to the binky. She was holding it in at the hospital!
Two cute girls!
Brooke didn't like her baths at first, but now we use running sink water and shower her. Julie gave us that sweet bathtub.
Uncle Nick. Little does Brooke know that he is the mean uncle. Well, maybe not a mean uncle, but he was the mean brother.

The newborn clothes were too big for her. We love those night shirts that make late night diaper changing much easier. Thanks Kristen!
Brooke is a high maintenece baby. She demanded a tanning bed immediatly after coming home.
Just before being released from the Hospital. Waiting....waiting....and on little sleep, and Holly still looks great!
So happy to be a daddy.

Our first family photo. Okay really this one it, but she is in her seat. This is on our way out of that damn hospital after we had to leave her overnight without us.

All of the girls. Grandma Laurie, having six sons and no daughters, is excited to see the balance starting to even out. She said that one more girl and it'll be even Poppop (Jerry) said, "It's not a contest." Her reply was, "Yes, it is."

Next to cousin Ellie.
Grandma Laurie taking care of the baby.
Brooke's early photos in the Nursury at the hospital.

Bob's favorite after work activity. Well, this and Nintendo.

At the Hospital

She's holding it in by herself!
I always think of Taco Amigo when we bundle her up so tight.

She had a stressful day. She went right to the NICU for CPAP. It's like the pressurized oxygen that fighter pilot use at altitude. Everything went well and she was out of there in an hour.
